i'm looking to buy an ipad 2 when its become available. i'm interested in the at&t model because its gsm and it uses a sim card. however, i want to use it with t-mobile network. so my questions are, is the at&t ipad 2 locked to at&t network?
does it use the small simcard kind that is on the iphone 4?
If the ipad 2 were to be unlock from at&t network, and i can get a small simcard from t-mobile and able get data service from it. would i be able to take full advantage of the 3G capability of the ipad on t-mobile network? or is it just going to be EDGE connection.
If the ipad 2 would not be able to connect to t-mobile network at 3G, then it would be a waste to spend the extra money even if it support edge. because my phone support hsdpa on tmobile and it is fast and i can just tether the ipad to it instead. but i would prefer to go all out if i can take advantage of the added function to its fullest potential.
